NEW Zealand's Bruce Anstey is to ride a two stroke at Dundrod next month in what will result in a major shake-up to the Lightweight race, organisers of the MCE Ulster Grand Prix have announced.
The Padgett's Motorcycles team rider, who became the fastest 250 rider ever at the Lightweight Classic TT in 2016, has never ridden the 250 before at Dundrod and will this year compete in the Lightweight class the Charles Hurst Motorcycles Dundrod 150 and the Plant Lubrication (NI) Lightweight at the MCE UGP. Team boss Clive Padgett has also confirmed that Anstey will ride iconic Moto GP bike, the Honda RC213V-S, at the Dundrod circuit for the second year running.
Anstey said: "I started my racing career on a Suzuki RGV250 and I still just love racing the 250. I won the Classic TT on the Padgett's Honda RS250 last year, the majority of the guys from the Classic are racing at the Ulster and I'm looking forward to getting out there with them again.
